Voting With Our Feet?

Just looking over these numbers, there's something I noticed. The states predicted to vote for Bush have gained eight electoral votes elative to the states predicted to go to Kerry. Just to complete that, the undecided ones have lost two. Are republican states better places to live? Do they just have more kids there?

On that last point, I remember seeing some analysis recently on the affect of abortion on voting. An ever larger number of aborted children since Roe v Wade would have been of voting age, and a disproportionate number were aborted in places that vote more often for the democrats. I guess it doesn't pay to kill off your voters.
